Trigger Finger

Trigger Finger / Trigger Thumb

Tendons glide through a pulley system in each finger, similar to fishing wire through the loops on a fishing pole.  Trigger finger is a tendonitis that interferes with smooth gliding through the pulleys during bending or straightening of the finger.  Treatment includes steroid injection and surgical release.  Dr. Liu is skilled with both treatments and will discuss the risks and benefits to help patients choose the most appropriate option.  Patients can expect to regain near normal movement of the affected fingers almost immediately.
